Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama has waded in the ongoing debate on gender parity following the criticism that met President Nana Akufo-Addo’s demand for more dynamism from women.

According to her, women activists need to be more tolerant of opposing viewpoints.

Speaking on Citi FM's 'The Big Issue', the minister also said the Ghanaian feminists and gender advocates needed to be more inclusive.

“The women’s movement has to be very tolerant of other people’s views and encourage other people to be part of the conversion and generate ideas to enable us to move on.”

Hajia Mahama is holding fast to her view that President Nana Akufo-Addo’s call was not deserving of criticism.
